Who will be recalculated the terms of imprisonment

On June 19, amendments to the Criminal Code came into force. The main innovation concerned the terms of detention. They took Russian legislation, which was adopted back in 2018, as a basis.

All convicts will be recalculated, taking into account the new rules. As a result, thousands of people will be released earlier.

The terms in the pre-trial detention center will now be calculated according to the following scheme (Article 75 of the Criminal Code):
  • 1 day in a pre-trial detention center is 2 days of imprisonment for a convicted person who has committed a crime under the age of 18, as well as when serving a sentence in a colony settlement;
  • 1 day in a pre-trial detention center is 1.5 days of imprisonment in a penal colony of general and high security. For example, if a person served 6 months in a pre-trial detention center, then there will be 9 months less to serve in a general and high-security colony;
  • 1 day in a pre-trial detention center - 1 day of arrest;
  • 1 day in a pre-trial detention center - as it was in the previous edition - is 2 days of restriction of freedom, that is,  "Chemistry" and "home chemistry." For example, he served 6 months in a pre-trial detention center, which means that there will be 1 year less to serve;
  • 1 day in a pre-trial detention center - 3 days of correctional labor or restrictions on military service;
  • 1 day in jail - 24 hours of community service.

It is still considered day after day for convicts serving their sentences in colonies of the strict and special regime and those in prisons. For example, he served 6 months in a pre-trial detention center, was assigned a year of imprisonment in a strict regime colony, and will remain to serve 6 months less.

The changes seem to be humane, but on the other hand - where is the Belarusian regime, and where is philanthropy. It is very likely that such an innovation was adopted in order to free up places in the colonies and finally clean up all those who disagree with the regime.
